PEMF, is a revolutionary wellness modality[4,5] that utilizes soothing Pulse Electromagnetic Fields to stimulate and exercise the body’s cells. PEMF, also known as High Energy Inductive Therapy (HEIT), is trusted worldwide to support the body’s natural healing and regulating abilities.
The earth emits a pulsing electromagnetic field at 7.8 hertz. This natural energy field, combined with around 8 million global lightning strikes per day, allows our planet to sustain life. Much like the earth, our bodies are electromagnetic; our brains use electromagnetic signals to communicate with every bodily system. Science has proven that if our cells have enough electrical charge, the body will heal itself!
PEMF is thought to provide several potential benefits due to its influence on cellular processes and physiological systems. Some of the potential benefits include:
Ancient civilizations used natural sources of electromagnetic fields for potential healing.
Nikola Tesla experimented with electromagnetic fields in the late 19th century.
Dr. Andrew Bassett’s research in the 1970s laid the groundwork for modern PEMF therapy by studying its effects on bone healing.
Commercial PEMF devices emerged in the 1980s, primarily for bone-related conditions.
Research expanded in the late 20th century to include pain management, wound healing, and neurological disorders.
Presently, PEMF therapy is used in medical and wellness fields, with ongoing research into its potential benefits and applications.
HOW DOES PEMF WORK?
PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) therapy works by applying electromagnetic fields with specific frequencies and intensities to the body. These electromagnetic fields can interact with cells and tissues, influencing various biological processes and promoting therapeutic effects.
Electromagnetic Field Generation: PEMF devices generate Pulsed electromagnetic fields using coils or other components. These fields consist of electromagnetic waves that vary in frequency and intensity based on the specific parameters set by the device.
Penetration into Tissues: When the PEMF device is applied to the body, the electromagnetic fields penetrate tissues, including skin, muscles, bones, and even cells. The depth of penetration depends on the frequency and intensity of the electromagnetic fields.
Anti-Inflammatory Effects: PEMF therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation by influencing the production of inflammatory mediators and promoting the release of anti-inflammatory substances.
Neurological Effects: PEMF therapy can influence nerve cells and their electrical activity. It may help modulate nerve signaling and contribute to pain relief and relaxation.
